An oceanographic survey cruise was made to a proposed interim sludge dumping site on the continental shelf in the Middle Atlantic Bight in spring 1973. Observations were made of circulation patterns, sediment composition, bathymetry, water quality, heavy metals in sediments and biota, bacteriology, phytoplankton communities, zooplankton communities, vertebrates, and benthic invertebrates. The site was found to be a normal mid-temperature shelf environment, with no significant stresses. Evidence of heavy metals enhancement of iron and copper in the epifauna at some stations warrants further investigation. (Author)
